What are you using to move the file? The overflow menu is the 3-vertical-dot menu button that is usually in the upper right corner.

Sorry it's ES file explorer...I checked upper right corner.. Not there on that app...I also looked at the file app that came with the phone... Not there either... This is the unlocked US model on 7.0

What if you go to Settings>Apps, select the ES File Explorer, then Permissions, and look for an SD permission there?

Use the HTC file manager. It already has rights.


Edit: I may have been thinking about the Samsung file manager...

Also, can you show us a screenshot of that message telling you to grant access? I just want to see exactly what it says.

In that screenshot, the underlying app has the overflow menu button at the upper right. So what happens when you tap that -- do you see "Show SD Cards"?

What I mean is that in the screenshot of the File Manager, there's an overflow menu at the upper right, right next to the search icon. Get out of that popup window, tap that overflow menu button, and see if Show SD Cards is an option in the menu that appears.

I got what you mean... But where is the overflow menu?( After I close that blue box I'll still in the file app) how do I find the overflow menu to select what there saying? As I understand it.. It's saying to Grand access to removable storage go to the overflow menu... Wherever that is?

The 3 vertical dot button is the overflow menu button. The menu that appears when you tap the 3 vertical dots is the overflow menu, and should include a Show SD Cards option.

Back out of that superimposed window so that you can tap the button.
